WHY ARE THE WATERS OF SA DRAGONERA SO SPECIAL ?
They have great ecological and fishing value.
They host a great diversity of habitats and communities in a relatively small area.
Posidonia Oceanica meadows grow expansively to the south and are areas of great biological production.
They are a habitat and refuge for numerous species.
Coral bottoms lie on the west coast and towards the north of the island with creatures as unique as gorgonians and formations of Maërl bottoms. Both generate structures that give shelter to different species of invertebrates, forming a unique and especially fragile community.
The rocky and rugged bottoms of the outer waters of Dragonera quickly reach great depths, with numerous crevices and caves in the cliffs that provide valuable habitats for a wide variety of species.
The eastern coast of the island is dominated by sandy bottoms where species adapted to these open spaces live and feed.
